Dancer Wade Robson has alleged Michael Jackson raped him for seven years in a blockbuster new documentary.

His claims will be aired in 'Leaving Neverland' which debuts at the Sundance Film Festival this month.

Jackson's family have blasted the claims dubbing Robson a 'scam artist' after he had previously sued the singer for $1.6 billion.

Robson testified under oath in 2005 that Jackson had never once touched him inappropriately or abused him during their time together.

He then filed a lawsuit against Jackson's estate in 2016 stating that he was raped for seven years by Jackson, from the ages of seven to 14.

However, that suit was dismissed with the judge ruling that the singer's estate could not be held responsible for the allegations being made by Robson.

Robson, 36, gained notoriety for causing the split between Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.

Timberlake penned the hit 'Cry Me A River' as a result after Britney reportedly cheated on him with Robson.

And Michael Jackson's family are furious that the new documentary is being aired at Sundance and that HBO plans to screen it later this year too.
